The research group SIAT Video Team (SVT) headed by Dr. Zhang Yun , which belongs to High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) of Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIAT, CAS). The research group has long been engaged in the research on H.264/AVC, HEVC and 3D video coding related theory and algorithms. SVT has a considerable research foundation and system platform in the field of efficient perceptual video coding. The group develops a series of (multi-view) video coding algorithms with high compression rate and low complexity as well as image / video quality assessment model, achieving excellent research results and innovations, their mission is to solve the key problems of multimedia big data, which include multimedia processing, compression, storage and transmission.

SIAT, CAS was jointly established by CAS, the Shenzhen municipal government and the Chinese University of Hong Kong in February 2006. SIAT has become an ideal development platform for overseas high-level talents to return to work. HPCC develops advanced high performance computing and data analytics techniques to speed up or improve the performance for domain-specific applications. HPCC brings together a group of outstanding talents at home and abroad, undertakes a number of major projects (national, provincial and municipal level) and strives for a total of more than 100 million yuan in funding in the past five years.
